We miss ya! I like your thoughts on building community within existing neighbourhoods. I certainly think it is a valid and viable model under the cohousing "umbrella." One thought on physical layout: the place that's come up for sale is across the street but I suggest that it would be easier to build a "cohousing-type" neighbourhood by looking in the other direction -- into the back yards and across the alley. An automobile-biased street forms a (un)natural barrier and is much more difficult politically to change or block, whereas removal of a few back fences and some sculpting of the alleyway seems much easier. /\ Willie Schreurs /\ //\\ <willie [at] FortNet.org> or <71500.2232 [at] compuserve.com> //\\ ///\\\ Future Home: Greyrock Commons, Fort Collins, CO ///\\\
